Where was Ron Paul in the Nevada Polls prior to this?


If anyone knows or can post the results I would be greatful.

I want to make a comparision between the Polls and "actual" Vote.

Here's some of the Nevada poll numbers from the Fox website. Looks like 3 different polling groups results.

Well from the chart here:
www.realclearpolitics.com...

Ron Paul averaged in last place among the polls. Amazing how the actual votes have not resembled any of the polls so far. Whats the point of using polls anymore if they have so many errors in them?

You may notice the only polls with such wide margins are the republican ones. McCain was polling under 10% and won by a landslide in New Hampshire, Romney was polling under 20% and now has 55% of the vote. The Dems poll numbers are pretty true to the caucus votes with only a few point swing.

Tell you anything...?

Once again, i've noticed a bias. IF you remember the Michigan/NH/Iowa Primaries results displayed on the the CNN main page, they would have the top 3 listed from each party. Since Ron Paul is 2nd according to the "detailed results" you only see 1 from each party displayed on the main page.

That does not mean conspiracy.

It's a caucuses, probably why limited information is being displayed. For the South Carolina vote the top 3 will be displayed again.

With 95% reporting, Ron Paul has won second place over John McCain.

Maybe, maybe not.

I'm sorry but i just don't see why they wouldn't just stick to the format they have been using throughout. So its a caucus, it doesn't make it any less important does it? They are both very different methods for accomplishing the same basic thing.

excluding Romney, it's pretty tight in the Republican field.

I'm looking forward to South Carolina now

Bloomberg, FOXNews, BBC, Skynews are among the stations saying McCainn is second


I know both him and Paul are on 13%, but who is officially second place? the media are reporting different people

Ron Paul is still listed in 2nd place .. Come on Ron Paul give them Hell .

I find it awkward that Mitt Romney has seemingly blown everybody away in Nevada. I never saw that coming. Though, Ron Paul did blow his "speculated" results out of the water, I still feel something fishy is going on.

If I was an American, I would want Romney running the economy. That guy knows business better than anyone. That's probably why he's scoring high, the economy is in the press all the time now. He benefits from it the most.
